Bee Crafty - Hochanda Samples.....

Morning everyone, bit late today with my post, so won't waffle on......we're actually moving stuff back into our new kitchen today after SIX weeks of living in 'limbo', so I'm a bit excited!
Anyway, just wanted to show a couple more cards I did as samples for the recent Hochanda shows for 
 Hope you managed to get some of the new Banksy XL stamps, they will come in very handy, I'm sure.
Two completely different styles for these......on this card I've heat embossed Hope in black & the balloon in red, then cut them out and adhered to 4 layers of white linen card. 
Find Hope & balloon HERE ....and the sentiment HERE
All cardstock is from PAPERMILLDIRECT
This card started with a background made from Distress Stain, swiped across white cardstock.....I then stamped the Flower Riot and sentiment stamps with white embossing powder and heat embossed.
I added a bit of colour to the flowers, and inked through the brick inkable to give another layer to the background.
Then all I had to do was cut a white frame and mount onto a balck mat.
Find Flower Riot HERE
Sentiment HERE 
Brick Wall Inkable HERE
Hope you like what I did with these fab stamps.....keep an eye out for more samples coming over the next few days.
Happy weekend

  1. Hi Barbara, I've just had a good browse through your blog and your cards are absolutely amazing. I especially like the first card on this post. It's so beautifully clean and simple and uses one of my favourite stamps. I tend to use her with water colours or Brushos, so this card is a complete contrast but it works so well. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and your new kitchen. Sandra :) x

  2. Great samples, love the layering up of the card and the distress stain background is a gorgeous colour.
